Makes me want
...to stay away from Paris. Drab environment, mean boys with slingshots run the streets unchecked, and most of the adults don't seem to be very understanding. Then again maybe it's changed in the last 60 years, but probably for the worse, though...(Yes, I know that's not the purpose of the film.)

Is this in the public domain or available for educators?
It's great to see this short film again. I remember my pre-school teacher showing it to us in 1987, and I begged my mother to find it at the library soon after. Now I teach high school and I use the film to introduce basic film-making techniques and strategies for my students.

A must have
I viewed this fantasy short back to the early '60s. It has stayed with me throughout my life. One of very few films that has this impact. Watch it once and it will stay with you as well. It is a masterpiece.
